Cake Decorating Hacks For The Beginner

If you’re looking for a fun and easy cake decorating project, why not try a fondant artistry? While it may sound a little unorthodox, most of us have at one time or another tried turning icing into a form of art. A lot of people turn icing into a sort of sculpture, turning it from a solid mass to a three dimensional work of art. The great thing about this particular artistry is that it is quite simple to do.

What’s more, you don’t need to be an expert in cake decorating to attempt this type of artistic cake decorating. All you need is some nice sugar cookies and an artist’s style to turn those little cookies into a work of art. Here’s how it’s done.

The first step is to use your icing tips to outline the shape of the cake with icing. Make sure you’re working with a smooth surface and that your icing is even. Once you’re happy with your outline, you can go ahead and use your cookie cutters to cut out the desired shape. You should have a couple of round objects to use as supports for your fondant; you can use your cake decorating tools to get them just right. Once you’ve got all of your supports shaped, it’s time to go back over your work with a cooling whip to smooth out any lumps and bumps in your work.

Fondant is a bit messy when it comes to cake decorating hacks. This is because there are so many different types of fondant available. When using certain types of fondant, it’s important to make sure you apply the entire sheet without letting any excess icing drip down onto the cake you’re working on. To avoid drips, you can put piping bags with small holes in them over your support objects. Then when you’re finishing your outline, you simply take your piping bag and fill the bag with icing and slowly pipe your design around your cake in smooth circles.

To make icing flowers, start by purchasing a small round container that has a hole in the bottom. You can then purchase a hobby shop art and crafts supply that have tools specifically designed to make icing flowers. Start with a toothpick or fork and poke long thread like projections into the cake. After you have finished inserting your thread, you’ll need to use a spatula to carefully scrape the thread off your cake. Repeat these steps until you have made all of your flower arrangements.

How to Decorate a Victoria Sponge Cake

Another one of the cake decorating hacks is to use a toothbrush to paint pictures on your cake. For this hack, you will need a good grade of paint, a piece of paper, and a cake decorating tool. Simply paint a picture on one of the walls and then use the paper to place the other side of the cake onto the cake pan. Using the cake decorating tool, you can then decorate all of the sides of the cake.

If you are looking for cake decorating hacks, you may also be interested in learning about sponge cake decorating. This type of cake requires that you have a smooth bottom on the bake ware you plan to use. To make sponge cake, start by filling the pan with water and then rolling out the cake so that it is nice and even. Next, you’ll want to put the sponge directly onto the prepared cake. You’ll want to use the tip of your finger to gently slide it over the cake and create a smooth surface for the sponge to lay on.

You can also use a food coloring spray to add extra color to your cake. Another one of the popular cake decorating hacks involves creating rainbow cake designs. This type of cake requires that you have a food coloring tablet. The ingredients for this type of cake include lemon juice, food coloring powder and a bit of sugar. Once you mix these ingredients together, you’ll be able to create an amazing rainbow cake design.
